You'll have to install X first. I had a similar problem and got helped in this thread. It will help you.

Edit - didnt see the previous post...

Pppppppppperhaps if you exercise patience ...

1. Try
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
for Sarge and Etch.
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
for SID.
Both as root user, of course. Answer the questions completely, especially the horizontal & vertical frequencies of your monitor, to achieve maximum resolution. If you don't know the specs of your monitor, look on the factory website. This is important.

The file your editing is /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 for XFree86 (Sarge and Etch) and /etc/X11/XF86Config for Xorg (SID). I added this line to the monitor section:
ModeLine "1024x768" 113.31 1024 1096 1208 1392 768 769 772 814 -HSync +Vsync
and was able to reach 100.00 Hz, which is why I bought the monitor.

2. I may need more details about your sound problem, but try installing Alsa and running alsaconf.

3. Did you install a log-in manager? Install kdm (for KDE) or gdm (for Gnome).

A piece of friendly advise: Ask only one question at a time and your more likely to receive a prompt reply.
